The Red Scarf Project

I don’t know how many knitters are out there reading this site, but there was recent project that just wrapped up called “The Red Scarf Project.”  It was a project set up by the Orphan Foundation of America that asked volunteers to make various unisex scarves for parentless “college-bound youth.”  They received a lot of scarves and many different people participated including Lion’s Brand Wool, which sponsored a 5th grade class’s knitting needles and wool.

You can read about it at  http://www.orphan.org/red_scarf_project.xhtml or http://nownormaknits2.typepad.com/now_norma_knits_2/2007/04/i_was_in_error.html

 In the end 15, 097 scarves were made.  So many that some are being kept for next year’s event.  They are planning to make the deadline earlier though.  It will likely be in September or October of 2007.
